What do you want for dinner tonight honey? My husband’s most requested meal!

I kid you not! Every time I ask my husband what he wants for dinner he always says Greek Steak pitas. I could probably get away with making this meal 3 or 4 times a week. If you love steak, you’ve got to give this one a try.

These Greek steak pitas turn out great no matter how I cook the steak. If you’ve never tried caramelized onions, you must! They are delicious. Sauteed onions are great with this meal but the caramelized onions are amazing. Check out the recipe for the different ways I’ve cooked the steak. The recipe shows my favorite way!

Greek Steak Pitas with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms

This recipe is pretty lean but to make this meal even leaner you can cut out the butter. My husband loves this with steak sauce. I love it with Greek yogurt mixed with some minced garlic and chopped fresh parsley.

Now, let me give you some options on how I have cooked the steak for this recipe. Sometimes I grill the whole steak and slice thinly after it’s cooked. I also have sliced the steak into thin strips and grilled the individual pieces. The cast iron skillet is my favorite! I always throw the steak in the freezer for about an hour before slicing. It is much easier to slice a firm piece of meat.

I hope you give this recipe a try. If you are looking for a lean side dish to try with this, you should check out my Not As Fattening As Fried Panko Zucchini here. If you love Greek pitas, I’ve got a Greek Grilled Chicken Recipe with Tzatziki sauce here.

Greek Steak Pitas with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms


  • 1 to 1 1/2 lb top sirloin steak, cut in thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 8 fresh baby portabella mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil, divided
  • Pitas


For the onions-Heat a skillet on medium low heat. Add the butter and 2 tablespoons of oil. Once the butter has melted, throw in the onions. Stir frequently. The onions should cook down for at least 30 mins. you may need to adjust the temperature if the onions begin to brown to soon. The key is low and slow.

While the onions cook, move onto preparing and cooking the steak.

For the steak-Combine sliced steak, oregano, cavender, salt and pepper in a ziploc bag. Mix until the seasoning has evenly coated the steak. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Sear sliced steak in batches for 1 to 2 minutes per side depending on how done you like your steak. Do not over crowd the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of oil if the pan gets to dry. Once the steak is cooked, throw your mushrooms in the pan and saute until tender.

Assemble the pitas with steak, onions and mushrooms.

  1. Making my mouth water over here! You mean uncooked steak, right, then you are cooking the strips–or are you reheating already cooked steak? Thanks.

  2. I just added this to our meal plan for next week. I’ll be trying it with elk steak, but I’m sure it will be just as tasty! Thanks for the recipe!

    Tried this and they were delicious! We’ve had them twice now but I’ll be making them many times more. Only thing I did different was I used Naan instead of a pita.

  4. brianna says:

    This looks delicious! Can use an all purpose Greek seasoning? I was not able to find that specific seasoning :/

      Hi Brianna! I’m not sure if all Greek Seasonings are created equal (lol) but give it a try! I would love to know how it turns out!

    • lacier77 says:

      Some pitas remind me of cardboard but Joseph’s are super thin, flexible, low carb, and delicious! Whatever you wrap on the pita is the star. The pita is just the vessel when it comes to flavor. I get them at Walmart.

  5. Annie Buck says:

    This sounds delicious. I am going to try this this week but I was wondering if you have ever used flour tortillas in place of the pitas?

    • lacier77 says:

      Hi Annie! That is so funny you happen to ask that question. I just made the steak pitas this week and didn’t have any pitas. Rather than go to the grocery store, I used flour tortillas and it was delicious! Great question at the perfect time. Thanks for stopping by!

      • Annie Buck says:

        I finally made this last week and getting ready to make it again tomorrow. My husband and I loved it. He said he could even eat it without the tortilla’s. It was great just by itself. Thank you for the great recipe.

        • lacier77 says:

          Hey Annie! YAY! I’m so glad you and your hubby enjoyed this recipe. My husband likes to eat the steak just dipped in Heinz 57 Sauce. Our husband’s must think alike. lol!
